Part II: TOGETHER
- This open panel conversation will focus specifically on trauma grounded in the 9/11 experience, with therapist-driven opportunities to hear stories of the day from NYC and the Pentagon, life since (including manifestations of PTSI), and steps taken for self-care of mental health. Panelists will include first-responders and health professionals.
About “Trauma and 9/11, Facing Challenges Together”
The jarring and difficult nature of the 9/11 attacks brought a new light to how officer trauma is viewed. While societal perspectives of post-traumatic stress have changed over the last few years, stigmas remain. By focusing on a large-scale, shared event, like the 9/11 attacks, perhaps we can open the door to better understanding the nature of trauma in the ongoing work of law enforcement.
